Nederburg was announced the 2016 International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) South African Wine Producer of the Year 2016. This is the second time that the winery achieves this prestigious award – the first instance was in 2012.
Nederburg to be named Winery of the Year is the highest accolade that is offered from PLATTERS GUIDE. To be given the award twice is inevitably rare. It was in the 2011 guide that Nederburg won a quintet of five star ratings and secured its nomination; now with four more such ratings, the large Paarl based winery, owned by mega company DISTELL , is the 2017 Winery of the Year – the publisher making the award to the winner of the most such ultimate ratings.
Nederburg has been a particularly interesting example of the achievements of the quality revolution in South Africa in the past few decades.
The Paarl winery also performed spectacularly at the 2016 Veritas Awards in early October, emerging as one of the top achievers, as well as at the 2016 Six Nations Wine Challenge.
Cellar-master Andrea Freeborough said all the recent acknowledgements for Nederburg, at home and abroad, was a magnificent way to conclude 2016. â€œIt has been a thrilling and intense year, and we are delighted that our winery and so many of our wines have been acknowledged across the multi-tiered range. We are truly grateful for the recognition and hope to continue making South Africa proud.â€
